Creating Music in the Browser

  • Shane Hudson


In Chapter 3 we used the Web Audio API to analyze audio by creating a simple visualization and a spectrogram. This chapter extends Chapter 3 by using the API to create music. To do this I introduce music theory and have a few examples before creating a web app that lets users create snippets of music using a basic synthesizer and to be able to move the snippets around the track to create their own music. This project is full of potential, so there are many routes you could take to modify it and make it your own, such as a full-fledged web-based Digital Audio Workstation.
